From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Tata Sierra, or Tata Sierra Turbo was a sport utility vehicle produced by Tata Motors of India.It was the first automobile fully designed and produced in India. The vehicle also forms the basis for DC Design's Arya Concept vehicle.The Sierra is powered by a 1.9 turbodiesel. Initially it had naturally aspirated engine but latter version were Turbocharged. The Sierra Turbo is believed to be the first turbo charged engine on cars in India at the time. The later version had distinguishable plastic fender flare and remodelled headlamp based on another tata vehicle Tata Estate. Tata used to provide 4x4 on special request. It was a three door SUV.

Being the first automobile from Tata Motors, part of the India's largest industrial house the Tata Group and better known for its dominance in the commercial vehicle segment, the Sierra is a concept suited to Indian conditions of driving. This is the first diesel vehicle to be accepted as a personal car in that country without the derogatory connotations associated with diesels. The design though not class leading is quite acceptable. It featured some firsts in India, such as adjustable steering. Engine noise is also remarkably well suppressed, while cruising in top gear it is difficult to tell that the powertrain under the hood is a diesel one. Other features included power windows, power steering and a tachometer. The body is very sturdy and so is the chassis. Durability is the hallmark of this machine. The Tata Sierra is no longer in production.
